Please find below a small part of the Q & A's that deal exclusively with transfers and corrections.
 
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. 

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. 

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-directrelatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor.  Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

There appears to be duplicate memorials for these two individuals - James #7432361 and Lucinda #7432366. Lucinda's # under your memorial is #35233189. These are not direct ancestors of mine, but feel that the memorials should be combined, so as not to be confusing to those who are researching them.

thank you.

Rose Elizabeth Carter
Hello,
I was wondering about my mother-in-law Rose Elizabeth Carter # 131561650. Did you know her or did someone request you to write her memorial?

I am trying to do some family research for my husband since he was adopted and we only knew Rose a short time before she passed. We also found out that her husband Bill Carter passed away a few months after her but have yet to locate some information about him. I was just wondering if you could help us at all with any details.

Thanks Christina & Fred

Abby,

I am helping my partner's Mother trace family, and was hoping that you could help me out by taking a photo of Rosemary Walker Memorial# 32985259 (Woodlawn Cemetery) headstone, and her husband's headstone Martin (Micky) G Walker.

I am building a familytree for the Walker family and I would be very thankful.

You posted a pic here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=57857519

If you're related that's fine. If not & you took this from funeral home site or something please remove it. It says when uploading not to post pics from other sites. And I'd hate to see this site shut down.
